5:19 pm
secretary of state mike pompei o. crucially important countries are either pulling out or sending low level delegations to the warsaw summit aimed at curbing iran's growing influence in the middle east will have sixty countries over thirty foreign ministers there from every continent save for antartica this is a global coalition that is going to deliver on the important mission as reducing the rest that disseminated from the middle east before. the iranian leaders who are not invited are denouncing the summit as a u.s. and iran circus i the trump administration reimposed sanctions last year after pulling out of a two thousand and fifteen nuclear deal between iran and world bar was the e.u. though decided to stay responding to international concerns about the conference
5:20 pm
and its motives polish government ministers say it will cover syria i still yemen terrorism trade and security of. the e.u. alone does not in my opinion kiri sufficient for political weight to try to really influence the situation in the middle east only working together with the united states and broadly speaking to the community of democratic countries can we have a positive influence and achieve peace is turbulence ation of the situation in the middle east. seventy countries are invited many are worried about a u.s. backlash if they snubbed the summit. dot the gathering would never be able to achieve its goals if you don't have russia you have the indication by europe that they're not going to send high level people that they made in lower level people i think that's a lie and a signal of concern but also the limitations of what can actually be inching so not
5:21 pm
only regarding issues that are wrong but what can be achieved with something other goals that the u.s. has set for it but the u.s. has staunch supporters in the middle east such as saudi arabia the u.a.e. and bahrain which have repeatedly called for a tougher stance against what they say is iran's destabilizing role in the region. joins us now from warsaw so what's been happening there today hashem. well michel we're expecting world leaders and delegations to arrive later in the day here in the old city for an official ceremony and then they will start the talks and this despite all the statements from the u.s. diplomats and from the polish government this is not iran focused the event has become divisive and controversial this explains why many world leaders have decided to stay away from this so-called conference for the promotion of peace and
5:22 pm
stability in the middle east earlier today members of the national council of the revolution of iran which is an umbrella organization of iranian opposition held a rally one of the attendees was the foreman of new york julie rudy giuliani has said very sabella time for a regime change in iran and this explains why we've been hearing some harsh words from the iranian government and from top military commanders into iran saying this is a worthless desperate tan's by the west and the united states of america in particular to undermine the revolution that has celebrated a few days ago or commemorate its fortieth anniversary the best listen to what the iranian foreign minister zarif had to say about this conference. it's another attempt by the united states to push through an obsession we did on that is not
5:23 pm
well founded and i think the fact that. they're not even aiming to produce any agreed text rather than just tempting to make a statement by going to jail so this is what are we expecting to happen in the today and particularly in tomorrow the americans are saying this is going to be more of a brainstorming session with delegations debating issues like war in yemen war in syria ways to defeat isis curbing iran's regional ambitions in particular its ballistic missile and nuclear ambitions tomorrow we're expecting the israeli prime minister benjamin netanyahu to deliver a speech and talk about the peace process in the middle east and that's another divisive issue because we're expecting the sudden loss of president donald trump. to brief word leaders about his peace plan for the middle east something that has caused consideration among the palestinian authority which has decided not to turn around and asking a muslim delegation is just
5:24 pm
a way because they're concerned the peace plan is about denying the palestinians to establish their own independent state with eastern jerusalem as their capital and they go on seeing the right of the refugees to attend from an american perspective though and from government's perspective if you have. their tenure there could be a great opportunity to bring all the most powerful countries to find ways to solve the problems of a region beset by violence instability geology and and civil wars van again you have the e.u. . top leaders not attending the russians are not attending and many people are sending a low level delegation what started as a promise by the americans to further isolate iran could end up being an embarrassment for the american diplomacy harbor life for us in warsaw thank you josh. european commission has added seven more countries including saudi arabia to
